Sergei Safronov: My priority is the health and education of children
The famous illusionist Sergei Safronov, not only the host of the Battle of Psychics on TNT channel, but also twice a happy father and a loving husband.
His beloved wife Masha first gave him his daughter Alina, and then the couple had a son, Vladimir.
- Sergey, how did you meet Masha?
We met when I was shooting in the project Miracle-people on NTV, and Masha worked there as a producer. Her task was to create for us the most comfortable conditions on the set: if it was raining – Masha dispersed the clouds; if we wanted to eat – food, as if by magic, appeared before us as soon as possible; if for the execution of tricks we needed an unusual props, Masha extracted it despite any difficulties.
It’s no wonder that when the project ended, I suddenly felt that without Masha I … well, as without hands!
But seriously, even in the process of working together on a project, we started a novel, and I was surprised to note that for the first time in my life my things moved to the house to my beloved girl. (Formerly, the development of relations always took place on my territory.) Suddenly … such a turn: not only my wardrobe, but I myself soon moved to Masha. Although we did not formally agree on anything, I understood that I was already ripe for family life, and Masha was ready for this step. That’s why when my beloved told me that we will have a child, I did not think about the question for a second what to do? .
A few months after this joyous news, Masha and I got married.
- So Alina is a planned child?
Shortly before the news of the Pregnancy Machine, we just discussed how great it would be to give birth to a baby, and … very soon our wish was fulfilled.
How was the pregnancy of the wife?
It was a real adventure for us: we read all sorts of literature and magazines about pregnancy, childbirth, proper nutrition, breathing, etc., in days and nights. In general, we spent time with benefit.
- And how do you feel about the idea of joint childbirth?
We discussed this possibility, I even saw a special video on the Internet. And, frankly, the desire to see the process of procreation with my own eyes was gone. Although until the last moment it was not clear who would be with Masha during childbirth – I or her mother (a professional psychologist).
As a result, on the day of birth I was on tour. However, after learning that my wife is giving birth, I immediately rushed to Moscow, but arrived an hour after Alina was born.
I think it’s for the best.
- What feelings did you experience when you saw your wife and baby?
- What principles of upbringing of children, used by your own parents, would you like to bring Alina and Volodya into life?
First, I look at them, sitting on my hands or at my mother's, and then only can come closer to the stranger, but to Sveta Alina immediately went into her arms, as if she knew her always. As a father, of course, it bribed me ...
My brothers and I have always been loaded with creative pursuits and sports. Moreover: in 4 years my mother and I took Andrei to the Sovremennik Theater and ... we got into the troupe of this famous theater, where we served for 7 years.
I would say that at that moment our childhood, in fact, ended, well, or it was radically different from what our peers understood by this word. Pianoforte, guitar, vocal, break dance, theater lycee under the direction of Alexander Vsevolodovich Kuznetsov ...
I do not understand when my brothers and I managed to play football. Of course, gamers play for hours, while neighbor's boys under the windows scream Go-ol !! , Is not an easy test for the child's psyche, but now I'm very grateful to my parents for the fact that our childhood has passed like this. After all, many of my household friends, unfortunately, have long been dead ... The fact that my mother and father saved us from their brothers from street temptations is their great service.
